A man and his dog were walking along a road. The man was enjoying the
scenery, when it suddenly occurred to him that he
was dead. He remembered dying, and that his faithful dog had been dead
for many years. He wondered where the road was
leading them. After a while, they came to a high, white stone wall along
one side of the road. It looked like fine marble. As he
reached the wall, he saw a magnificent gate in the arch, and the street
that led to the gate made from pure gold. He and the dog
walked toward the gate, and as he got closer, he saw a man at a desk to
one side.

When he was close enough, he called out, "Excuse me, where are we?"

"This is heaven, sir," the man answered.

"Wow! Would you happen to have some water? We have traveled far," the
man said.

"Of course, sir. Come right in, and I'll have some ice water brought
right up."

The man gestured, and the gate began to open.

"Can my friend," gesturing toward his dog, "come in, too?" the traveler

"I'm sorry, sir, but we don't accept pets."

The man thought a moment, remembering all the years this dog remained
loyal to him and then turned back toward the road and
continued the way he had been going. After another long walk he came to
a plain dirt road, which led through a farm gate that
looked as if it had never been closed. There was no fence. As he
approached the gate, he saw a man inside, leaning against a
tree and reading a book.

"Excuse me!" he called to the reader. "Do you have any water? We have
traveled far."

"Yes, sure, there's a faucet over there." The man pointed to a place
that couldn't be seen from outside the gate. "Come on in
and help yourself."

"How about my friend here?" the traveler gestured to his dog.

"There should be a bowl by the faucet; he is welcome to share."

They went through the gate, and sure enough, there was an old-fashioned
faucet with a bowl beside it. The traveler filled the
bowl and took a long drink himself, then he gave some to the dog. When
they were full, he and the dog walked back toward the
man who was standing by the tree waiting for them.

"What do you call this place?" the traveler asked.

"This is heaven," was the answer.

"Well, that's confusing," the traveler said. "The man down the road said
that was heaven, too."

"Oh, you mean the place with the gold street and pearly gates? Nope.
That's hell."

"Doesn't it make you mad for them to use your name like that?"

"No. We're just happy that they screen out the folks who'd leave their
best friends behind in exchange for material things."
